Partially rendering Handlerbars from Backbone view

While working on a project I had this situation where I wanted to render a view partially after some ajax is done. In this post I will explain how to render HandlerBar views partially. For the purpose of demonstrate I will simulate delay using setTimeout() function instead of an ajax request. So for an example lets consider following setup 1. Template <script id="PersonTemplate" type="text/x-handlebars-template"> <div> {{firstName}} {{lastName}} <div> <div id="divPartial"> <a href="{{website}}">{{website}}</a> </div> </script> 2.
